Stolen plates are mounted on other vehicles and used in committing such crimes as: speeding, parking in prohibited areas, to avoid paying fines for polluting, stealing the fuel at petrol stations, and to avoid payment of fines for parking or speeding while using stolen cars. Cars with stolen plates are used also for more serious crimes such as kidnapping or robbery. Special new arrays are designed to hinder the thief quickly up to their disassembly.
DVLA is currently working on this issue with many stakeholders.

In order to develop the technology and establish standards for new tables DVLA is co-working with plate producers.
